Rocky is a very handsome 3 year-old Collie mix and a real gentleman. He came to us from an overcrowded rural county dog shelter so we don’t know anything about his life before he entered the shelter. Rocky is a great boy who seems to form attachments to new people quickly. He has gotten along well with the other dogs in his foster home and is very affectionate with his human friends. Rocky can climb over a four foot fence so will need a privacy fence to keep him safe at home. On the couple of occasions that he jumped the fence in his foster home, he did not run away but stayed in the front yard waiting for someone to open the front door for him. Rocky really hates being on a tether so likely lived somewhere previously where he was loose and could do as he pleased. For that reason, we do want to place him in a home with a tall privacy fence or he will need to be kept on a leash at all times. Rocky has excellent crate manners and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. He walks nicely on a leash and will make a great walking or hiking buddy for his new family. Rocky weighs about 60 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Rocky. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
